SiSEC 2010

Welcome to the main page for the second community-based Signal Separation Evaluation Campaign (SiSEC 2010).

SiSEC aims to be a large-scale regular campaign building upon the experience of previous evaluation campaigns (external link) and first community-based Signal Separation Evaluation Campaign (SiSEC 2008 (external link)). The unique aspect of this campaign is that it is not a competition but a scientific evaluation from which we can draw rigorous scientific conclusions.
